ISA Pay It Forward: Funding Sustainable Projects Around the World

We are proud to announce ISA Pay It Forward, a grant fund that supports ongoing sustainable development projects to serve under-resourced communities around the world. All ISA students have the opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ by contributing a $5 donation when applying for an ISA program online. 100% of ISA Pay It Forward donations go toward funding sustainable projects identified by our ISA Service-Learning community partners in 12 cities around the world.

ISA Service-Learning students play an important role in the success of these projects throughout their program. Additionally, ISA students may have the opportunity to lend a helping hand during their program on an ISA Volunteer Day.

The first partner organization selected to receive the Pay It Forward grant is Patio Volantín in Valparaíso, Chile. Through the financial support of ISA Pay It Forward along with the hard work of local community members and ISA Service-Learning students, this community exchange center is on its way to building a community garden and renovated green space in an abandoned building that was destroyed during a devastating earthquake in 2010.
